Achey fingers climb steep hills with dice and a paperback  
1) Guitar Hero III for the Wii is fantastic fun. If you have this for the Wii, drop me an email (ed_gentry@yahoo.com) with your friend code and we can jam. (Note that I've beat it on easy but I've just started it on medium.)

2) My new job is going alright. Like most new things there is steep learning curve but I'm making progress.

3) One of my tabletop D&D games is coming to a close soon (3-4 sessions remaining), another is going on hiatus in favor of starting a new Star Wars RPG game, and the other one (where I am DM) is going in bits and spurts as scheduling is always tough. If anyone figures out a way to play D&D roughly 8 hours a day and still pay the bills, let me know. I love it.

4) The book seems to still be selling alright. I'm still at 4.5 stars after 6 reviews and feedback on the fan forums is still overwhelmingly positive.

5) Looking at the top four items here, I have to say that I'm a pretty lucky dude. Factor in a great wife and that cinches it.


Finally, if anyone has a great, uncommon cure for stuffed sinuses (by uncommon I mean non-traditionally-medicinal) I'd love to know it.

What's up with you?

Have you tried the neti (sp?) pot? You basically irrigate your sinuses with warm salt water and it's supposed to work wonders. Never tried it myself, but it might do the trick for you.

And congrats on 1-4! :)

It sounds like things are going well! Congratulations.

Finally, if anyone has a great, uncommon cure for stuffed sinuses (by uncommon I mean non-traditionally-medicinal) I'd love to know it.

Hot and sour soup. Drinking gallons of water. Running a humidifier and long steamy showers. Avoiding alcohol and milk. The basic principle to all of them is to make it easier for the sinuses to unstuff themselves. (I do take allergy meds throughout the year, also, since my allergies include the dreaded Dust Mites which will out live cockroaches in a nuclear inferno.)

Factor in a great wife and that cinches it.

You are *most* fortunate there. Please tell her hi for me!

What's up with you?

Want to hibernate. Can't, due to work and other obligations. Sun is out today, which is a lovely thing.

Things are moving, slowly, but moving on the comic front. My Blog has details if you care to know more. Congratulations on the continued success of your novel Ed.

I think I may try one of those. Thanks, Marce. I'll let you know how it works.

Thanks for the tips, Janet :)

J.L., I am remarkably lucky that I get to game as much as I do but I always want more. The comic thing sounds awesome. I hope it continues to move along for you.

Epheros,

Thanks so much for coming over to comment! More importantly thank you for giving the book a chance. I hope the characters starting ringing more with you but I'm glad you're enjoying it generally.

Good reviews are always welcome! Thank you for that. While I never ask someone not to review, I certainly don't encourage those who didn't enjoy the book. I'm lucky in that there's only been a few of those folks so far that I know of.

I do love wasabi but unfortunately my acid reflux does not. Still, I have a pile of wasabi peanuts at home right now waiting for me :).

As an update, I tried the neti pot suggested by Marce and I have to say it
actually works.

Thanks again Epheros. I look forward to hearing more and/or seeing the review.

-Ed
